The Arc de Triomphe stands at the end of the avenue des Champs Elysées at place Étoile – the huge roundabout where 12 tree-lined avenues converge. If you’re into extreme sports you may want to rent a car and take it for a spin around the Arc de Triomphe just to test yourself against Parisian traffic (bear in mind that many travel insurance policies specifically state that you will not be covered if you have an accident on the Étoile roundabout). Napoléon commissioned the arch in 1806, 30 years later it was finished and ready for tourists to gawk at. The best access if from the underground passage on the northern side of avenue des Champs Elysées. You get a pretty good view from the top.

    Chega-se através de um túnel subterrâneo, tem fila, as escadas são estreitas. A vista é maravilhosa e compensadora. Vale a pena! Na saída tem um mini museu pra comprar lembranças ($$$$).

    Bit boring; they've turned this into the center of a traffic circle. Illegal to slow down or stop in traffic circle. The historical image of the Nazis marching through the Arch brings chills.
